From the Suggestion Box: Noise in the atrium

I am a work study student who works at the circ desk. Students have complained about noise coming from an office window that is open in the atrium. I believe that the window is in the interlibrary loan department. Thank you for alerting us to this concern. We have spoken to the staff whose windows... more

From the Suggestion Box: White noise in 24 hour study rooms

First of all, thank you for having the 24 hour study rooms as a great option for students to come to study. I do have one suggestion to improve them, and that is to put “white noise” machines in them. Student health services as well as the learning assistance center use them throughout their offices... more

From the Suggestion Box: Quiet zones in the library

From the Suggestion Box: Women’s bathrooms

Replace all tampon and napkin dispensers in women’s bathrooms – many are broken and some don’t have any machines at all. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We took this issue to Facilities Management and they said that, in fact, the filling of these dispensers was discontinued ten years ago campus-wide but the... more
